Flying to Lapland

Today it's time to fly to Lapland. I've been here in Helsinki since Wednesday meeting my family and friends - who have taken good care of me, thank you guys! -, as well as making the last preparations for the trek. I've bought some maps from the trek area, and I found a new light soft shell jacket to be worn on the warmer days.

We are going to fly to Kittilä, from where we drive with a bus to Kautokeino in Norway. There we will stay overnight in a motel. Monday morning we buy the food for fortnight trek, share the tents and other gear. And then we should be ready to take off - Go west, young men! ;-)

The weather should be quite good for the next days, albeit with occasional showers. We will see how it comes.

Kautokeino, here we come!
